The value of pKa indicates that in the range
of pH usually considered relevant to the human body and environment,
i.e. pH 2-9, the substance will be non-ionised.
The pKa of tetradecan-1-ol is predicted to be 15.8 using a reliable
No measured data for dissociation
constant of tetradecan-1-ol were available. The pKa value (normal
conditions) was predicted using SPARC.
While the hydroxyl group is
ionisable, aliphatic alcohols are extremely weak acids and only
dissociate under strongly basic conditions. In the range of pH usually
considered relevant to the human body and environment, i.e. pH 2-9,
tetradecan-1-ol will be non-ionised. There is no need to conduct further
Discussion of trends in the
Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:
Measured data have not been
collated. However, in general, long chain aliphatic alcohols are
extremely weak acids and only dissociate under strongly basic conditions
(pKa= 15.8). In the range of pH usually considered relevant to the human
body and environment, i.e. pH 2-9, the substances of this Category will
